    I am really tempted to get this iPad Pro 12.9 on Ebay. I just don't know if I can say no to such a good deal.

    Here is the link to the page!

    Also, the product has gotten really great reviews and feedback from other buyers.

    It's been restored by a phone company so it's probably fine. I bought the first iPad as a refurb through ATT after iPad2 came out. It was a steal. I used it for nearly a year and sold it just before iPad3 came out for $15 more than I paid for it. It's probably a good deal.

    If you decide to buy it I hope you enjoy it for a long time.

    Ebay has some pretty great buyer protections (Its why people don't like selling on it here). If you receive it and Theres a problem it's pretty much gaurenteed ebay will help you return it/ get your money back. I'd buy it and enjoy! Using a refurbished 12.9 from Apple in January and it's perfect.

    62 Negative feedback in the past month? I wish people wouldn't keep linking to eBay sellers.

    I didn't read the reviews, but after doing so I'd probably avoid it too. I've gotten some great items on eBay though, and if you just blindly avoid it you can lose a good chunk of money.

    With those negative reviews, though, there are 1671 positive reviews. Additionally, if you read the reviews for this item specifically, they are very positive and all say the condition was perfect.

    Combining neutral and negative reviews, you have about a 5% chance of getting something that doesn't work right or has scratches. But perhaps the iPad reviews are the ones you can trust. Let us know.

    I bought a carrier refurbished iPad Pro 9.7" from this same seller for $380 (I think they sold out about a week ago). I received it on Thursday and haven't had any issues yet. The only concern I had was the iPad arrived with a completely depleted battery. Like it took an hour for it to turn on. But I checked a battery app and it says capacity is still at 100%. So no complaints so far.

    I was debating the new iPad, but for $50 more getting the iPad Pro was an absolute steal. I also purchased a new smart keyboard for it for $80. Moving from iPad mini 2 to a iPad pro w/ smart keyboard provides a huge difference

    Edit: You also have to consider that nearly 100% of people who have issues will leave a review. At best you could hope to have maybe half of people who are satisfied leave a review. So even when you have 3% negative reviews you have to realize probably closer to 1% of people had issues. And then you also have the option to return or file a complaint through eBay.

    Congrats, I'm glad it worked out well for you. I wouldn't have taken a chance on that. shrug.gif

    Same. I saved $300 on iPad Pro and Keyboard vs buying new. and like I said above only spent $50 more than the new iPad (plus the $80 I spent on the keyboard). Now having the smart keyboard, I'm especially glad I went this route. It adds a whole other dimension to the experience.

    It's not ebay that was the issue but this particular seller.

    many people on this forum will steer away from anything that's on ebay. I've seen many people on this forum advise others to avoid it, not understanding that it's buyer protection is good.

    Yeah I think it's a good deal, but I'd prefer cellular + at least 128GB. People who nitpick on eBay seller ratings seem to imagine that 100% of several thousand buyers will somehow magically be perfectly satisfied with their device.

    This is nonsense - just look at the thread where someone swapped 4 iPads just because of some screen alignment issue. With a large enough customer base, there's always going to be nitpickers who are dissatisfied. Not even Apple's own excellent satisfaction policy is enough for some people.

    Looks like the 9.7" Pro. Right now the 12.9" 128GB would be more rare and valuable, but yeah if 9.7" is more your thing that's also a decent price.

    I grabbed a 12.9 128GB Cellular from Swappa.com for $635 with three cases. It was ad flawless and a great deal.
